Everything you need to know
Do I need to give a deposit when booking?
Different accommodation providers have different requirements. Sometimes you will be asked to give a deposit; sometimes you may be required to give the full payment. Be sure to refer to the cancellation policy before making any bookings online. If you are booking with a Guru, you will be notified before the booking is confirmed.

How long before travel should I book?
We advise to organise your trip at least a month in advance to ensure you get your ideal vacation. Availabilities become more limited (and generally more expensive) the closer you get to your departure date, so don’t wait - book now!
How long does my membership package take to arrive?
We’ll aim to have your package to you in 7 - 10 working days. If your package still hasn’t arrived after that time, please contact us and we’ll follow it up for you. Please note: You’ll have immediate online access once you become a member, so if you need to book your holiday, simply log in or call: 1300 797 537to make a booking.
What's the difference between an Access Pass and Paid Membership?
An Access Pass gives you 3 months access to the member's area. You can still book with our Gurus but wont receive discounts on bookings, travel insurance or free use of the invaluable Itinerary Review Service. Paid members also get priority access to our Travel Gurus. Click here for more information on membership.

You can purchase any one of our services individually- flights, accommodation, transfers, car hire, rail journeys, insurance, attraction tickets and more. Alternatively we can plan and package the whole trip or sections of the trip for you.
